International Student You Oon from South Korea

How did you come to study in Adelaide?

While I was studying in South Korea, 作为一名国际学生,我得到了去英国学习的机会. 从韩国大学毕业后,我想再次出国留学. 我参加了一个国际学生活动,他们推荐了澳大利亚.

我更喜欢人口少、不拥挤、不像其他城市那么繁忙的地方. 这就是我如何找到365bet和弗林德斯大学的原因,该校有一个研究生入学护理课程.

 

After studying English literature in South Korea, 你是来弗林德斯大学攻读护理学士学位的. Why did you choose nursing?

说实话,一开始,我想来澳大利亚学习兽医科学. Because I find Australian animals quite fascinating. 但学习护理学更快,因为这门课程有研究生入学资格, so it only took two years, instead of four. 现在我已经毕业了,我很高兴能成为护理人员,我想继续做一名护士.

 

告诉我们你在弗林德斯大学学习的时间.

When I first came to Australia, I didn’t know anyone. I didn’t have any family or friends here. 但我很快就找到了20多名和我学同一门课程的韩国学生. They were really, really helpful. 我们聚在一起,在课后分享汇报,这对我们很有帮助.

The campus here is really safe with good security. 我经常待到很晚,甚至在图书馆过夜,那里有很好的电脑.


What’s your accommodation like in Adelaide?

I live close to campus. I found a home through flatmates.com.au while I was still in South Korea.  我有一个好房东,已经在同一所房子里住了四年了. Now there are four of us in the house. 我们大多数都是弗林德斯大学的学生,已经毕业,现在工作.


自2019年毕业以来,你一直是一名护士. Tell us how you found your job.

这是我毕业后得到的第一份工作,而且我还在那家公司工作. 我很幸运能在养老院找到一份工作,因为当我在学习的时候, I was only interested in aged care and theatre. So, I applied for aged care which I love. 我以前和爷爷奶奶住在一起,我喜欢和老人聊天.

当我毕业的时候,我担心我怎么能找到一份工作没有经验. 我去了弗林德斯大学的就业博览会,问他们是否雇佣毕业的护士. They said they did and told me to email them.

弗林德斯的职业团队帮我写了简历,我还做了模拟面试准备. 大约在我毕业一个月后,我找到了一份老年护理注册护士的工作.


告诉我们从学习到工作的过渡是什么样的.

因为我是一名注册护士,我必须负责监督病床. It was hard at first. 我刚毕业的时候就习惯了做导师. 我经常管理在那里工作了10年以上的员工. I was worried, but my co-workers were very supportive.

注册护士在老年护理中有很多角色. 我尝试过很多不同的事情,并被提升为护理部主任. 我们有可爱的住院医生,我非常喜欢我在那里的工作.

 

去年,在新冠肺炎疫情最严重的时期,在养老院工作是什么感觉?

I was working for about a year before the pandemic.

When everything happened, there were a lot of changes. We had to change our attire. We couldn’t wear any jewellery, not even wedding rings.

我们必须雇佣更多的护士,在人们进来的时候对他们进行筛查. 我们有访客,志愿者,雇员,承包商的表格. Everyone had to be recorded.

We had to get proof of visitor’s flu vaccination. Sometimes people wanted to come in without showing us. 但我们有自己的政策,没有它,人们就不能进来.

这很困难,因为接受姑息治疗的居民病情会迅速恶化,他们无法见到自己的亲人. And for residents with dementia, 他们很难理解为什么要把自己隔离在房间里.

It was really hectic. 我们不能有机构工作人员,也不能让工作人员在其他养老院工作. It was complicated, but suddenly it just lifted up.

And soon we will be doing COVID-9 vaccinations.

 

你在365bet有什么最喜欢的地方或事情吗?

I’m a homebody, 不过我很喜欢南澳最大的购物中心离我家只有5分钟的路程. 我喜欢去离我家只有10分钟路程的布莱顿海滩. Or the city is just 20-minutes away. It’s nice and quiet where my house is. I want to live here forever. Adelaide is a good place. Nice and a quiet pace which is really good for me.
